Paul Pogba Injury: Juventus Star Hurt Ahead of Europa League Clash vs. Sevilla, May Miss Rest of Season
Juventus’ midfielder Paul Pogba suffered a hamstring injury, during Wednesday’s training session, and this has put a huge question mark around his participation in the rest of the season’s fixtures. Juventus have a crucial Europa League clash coming up against Sevilla on Thursday and Pogba has been ruled out of the first leg fixture. However, the club is yet to release official information on the extent of the injury and the potential length of time out.
The French international has been a standout performer for Juventus this season, and his presence will be sorely missed if he is unable to play in the remainder of the season’s fixtures. Juventus has already won the Serie A title for the ninth consecutive year, and the Europa League title is now a priority for them. The loss of Pogba would be a massive blow to their chances of winning this prestigious competition.
Paul Pogba has been in scintillating form this season, scoring 11 goals and providing 9 assists in all competitions. His performances have been so impressive that he has been linked with a return to his former club Manchester United. However, Juventus has stated that their star midfielder is not for sale, and that he will remain with the club for the foreseeable future.
The midfielder played a pivotal role in Juventus’ win over Barcelona in the Champions League quarterfinals, helping the team to reach the semi-finals of the competition. His contribution to Juventus’ success this season has been immense, and his absence will be felt by the team and the fans.
The injury is even more difficult to swallow, considering the fact that he had just returned from a two-week break due to muscle fatigue. Pogba had looked refreshed and rejuvenated in the 3-2 comeback win over Udinese, on the weekend, and had fueled hopes that he could play a key role in the team’s attempt to win the Europa League title.
If the injury turns out to be serious, it could also have an impact on his chances of playing for France in the upcoming European Championships. The tournament has already been postponed by a year due to the coronavirus pandemic, and France is considered one of the favorites to win the competition.
In conclusion, the injury to Paul Pogba is a significant setback for Juventus, and their hopes of winning the Europa League title this season. It remains to be seen how severe the injury is and how long the midfielder will have to spend on the sidelines. However, his absence will be deeply felt by fans of the Turin-based club, and they will be hoping for a speedy recovery for their star player.
